Ky Baby Knits: Help me pick my yarn pretty please!!

You can see all yarn here:

I picked two shorties and doing one in Blue Grass *yum*

But I can't decide on the second. It's between:

Iris

Ireland: see it here

Well I immediately thought you should do Ireland- but since your Blue Grass is primarily green Id go with the Oregon Skies

Its hard though- I love the Iris too!

Your babe is going to have some BEAUTIFUL shorties! Lucky mama

do you think it's too dark, like too green? I don't mind honest opinions. this is the first time I had to pick a yarn, it's always been semi custom. maybe I should do Iris and Ireland. hmmmmmm

I dont think its too dark. I will say though I like how she leaves alot of the natural color in the two colorways (Iris and Ireland). Its unique and looks great knit up.

Maybe do Riverbed or Oregon Skies for a blue colorway and Ireland since it has greens? Or Iris instead of Ireland.

Thats what Id do. Honestly though Id have to think on it quite awhile. Im indecisive and they are all so pretty- I still really like the Blue Grass

I LOVE the oregon sky. Plus, IMO it can go with a lot more and you will be able to match it better to t's & stuff. Love all of them, and I agree with the pp about not getting them too close together in color.

NOWWW you see what my issue is. I just had to clear my head and was thinking maybe iris and ireland. AAAAAAAAA I'm so confused:*(

What I have so far

green sage crochet w/ pocket

These are being knitted up



and a million soakers.. gosh I thought I had more coming ha ha.

yea now that I put that all out there, I def think I have too much dark blue and dark brown. Maybe Blue Grass and Ireland will give me more outfit options.

That was very smart to think about what I had. I've been hit BIN so much I forgot what I ordered... that's never ever ever good
